Martin Luther King Jr. wrote this letter from jail in 1963 after being arrested for non-violent protests in Birmingham, Alabama. In this letter, ML King Jr. makes an appeal to the faith community to embrace Brotherhood and Love. This letter is powerfully written and is as relevant today as the day it was penned. Within its body, it contains a very chilling truth: injustice in society is often preserved, not by the scheming of the evil, but by the silence of the ’moral’ masses, including the Church.
This letter is a MUST READ for anyone interested in social justice, poverty, equality, community development, and the like.
